We need this on the next Sync update. Someone with Ford ties make it happen.

Seriously. the Sport Mode cluster is basically begging for one.

Intake temps and oil pressure would be nice too, but apparently thats asking for too much info on modern vehicles.

HAHAHA! A sync update cannot do what you are asking. A Sync update pertains to the APIM, and the changes you are asking for are in the IPC. It would need to be a Ford installed firmware change at the dealer most likely.

I honestly think the coding is already there. Without a vehicle with a similar cluster that does display Boost there is no coding to compare and figure the difference.

I'd be fine with a dealer firmware update for this. It's blasphemy the F150 ecoboost has it but not us.

P3 Gauges vent gauge...it’s a boost gauge plus a whole lot more. Not cheap and you have to fit it yourself but nothing looks cleaner.
Maaan, you're trading AC vent space real estate down in humid ass H-town. Crazy. :D

Is that connected via bluetooth or ODB2 port?

could be both? definitely requires a connection to the obd2 port but lots of companies (OBDLink probably being the most reputable) make little obd2 port adapters that will send a bluetooth signal to the app of your choice.

I am curious though which app @LokiWolf is using... it looks super clean.

*edit* on second thought it doesn't look like a phone but rather a stand-alone tuner monitor

Love the fact that is hardwired, and always there. I actually have it out right now, working on a hard mount for it.

That looks pretty nice. $400! Do you hide it when you park?
Well worth it for me to see everything I want!

I typically don’t park places where that is a concern. It is easy to pop off it’s mount if you needed.

Couldn’t you just get a cheap android tablet and use something like OBD fusion ?

Or I could use a device that is designed to do what it does. Boots quick, and looks great. Automatically adjusts for day and night. Go look at the reviews on it. It is pretty badass.

Sorry it came across a bit terse. No offense taken. Just not a fan of the cheap Android tablet route. Much Rather have a device meant to work in the temperature extremes of a car...
